You got to wake up
You're in the presence of your future
Wake up
See what you're doing in our sleep

You got to wake up
You're in the presence of your future
Wake up
From the mistakes of the past

From time to time we come alive
But not for very long
See what shape the world is in
And wonder what went wrong

Never dreaming, not for a second
That sleeping is the cause
We make solutions in our sleep
It's dangerous for us all

Wake up
You're in the presence of your future
Wake up
See what we're doing in our sleep

Wake up
You're in the presence of your future
Wake up
From the mistakes of our past

In our sleep, we live it up
Just to wake up and find our dead
Change our hair and hairstyles too
But have the same empty heads

Brothers and sisters I'm telling you

This is what we've got to do

Wake up
You got to wake up
Oh, wake up (doo doo doo doo doo, da da da)

Wake up
You got to wake up (they don't have to?)
Oh, wake up
You've got to wake up
Oh, wake up
You've got to wake up

Wake up
You're in the presence of your future
Wake up
See what you're doing in our sleep

Wake up
You're in the presence of your future
Wake up
See what you're doing in our sleep

In our sleep, we change our wife????
We change our suit of clothes
We change our church, we change our god
But have the same funky soul

Never dreaming, not for a second
Sleeping is the cause

Oh, wake up
You've got to wake up
